This chapter provides a supervisory control algorithm that deals with the balanced generation and re-use of stored energy using the powersplit between engine and electric machine as control variable. Hereby taking into account only real-time available information such as the gas pedal position, the state-of-energy of the battery, vehicle velocity, and possibly road slope.
